Usually a standard magnetic marker with the Bruins 8 spoked B logo.

An Army buddy got some poker chips made with our unit insignia on them. He used them as anti-challenge coins, handing them out as jokes or in recognition of doing something dumb. I'll bust that out once in awhile.

I buy a marker whenever I play a new course. I have a binder with coin collector album pages and put a little sticker of where and when it was from. One of those generally useless things that my kids will have to uncomfortably debate throwing out when I die.

I use a 1972 dollar coin. I strive to shoot 72 every round (even though it doesn't happen much any more), so if I match my score to the year, I'm playing pretty well.

I won an award presented at the White House in 2015. Joe Biden palmed it to me when we shook hands. I immediately regretted my decision to leave my agency challenge coin at home (Iím a cop). I almost brought it but wasnít sure it would be proper to challenge coin the VP. Turns out he coined me instead.

Usually the older quarters that have the eagle on them.  Or the newer ones that have a bird on them.  

Dimes are good if you have to mark near the hole.  

Nickels and half dollars are bad luck.

Pennies are too easily camouflaged.

When people use poker chips or other manhole covers I have them moved if near my line.  Annoying.

Found this in my pocket after a night of drinking on a business trip. Headed to the course so I played with it and did rather well considering the hangover. Been in there ever since. Will occasionally use a Georgia Bulldogs marker as well.

I try to land my ball in an unrepaired pitch mark if possible.

Serves as an excellent ball marker, and has the added benefit of preventing your ball from rolling away on a slope.
